Jockey Club applies for injunction against ‘illegal and reckless’ Derby protests


The Jockey Club has lodged an application for a high court injunction against what it describes as Animal Rising’s “explicit threat” to disrupt the Betfred Derby festival at Epsom. The injunction cites the racecourse, the parade ring and the route the horses take between the two and seeks to prevent unauthorised persons from entering any of those areas, or from throwing any object into them, with the aim of disrupting racing.
